This is a case study of one school which is attempting to promote learner-managed learning and democracy in schools. 

It is written by the head with contributions by students and teachers. The report describes how a traditional, academically selective independent day school is setting out to create an open and democratic ethos in which the students themselves have ever greater responsibility for, and power over, their own lives and learning.

Evidence is produced that students, and their teachers do work better individually and together; that the atmosphere of the school becomes more relaxed, friendly and creative; and that academic standards, at least as measured by public exam results, rise.
